December 31st, 2014 Happy New Year

December 31st, 2014 Happy New Year

I'm so glad this day is over. I'm postponing my planned epic New Years post until tomorrow night. The time stamp says 11:59pm on this post--but it's actually 2:11am. I back time in order to get the proper date for the entry.

Happy New Year! Wow. What a year. It's been absolutely beautiful. It didn't start that way. Yeah--it wasn't a good first quarter. The last three quarters were very nice. But even in the first quarter, I can find positives. It was certainly baby steps early on.

Today wasn't a good day to be sick. I did a location broadcast from 4 to 7pm and the party I was booked to DJ was 9pm-12:30am. I didn't finish the load out into the storage building until after 1am. Did I mention I'm so happy this day is over? Oh yeah--I did.

I'm feeling somewhat better. Thank you for the wonderful well wishes! Also--big thank you for the reminders that it's okay to not eat when I'm sick. I've counted a lot of calories for food I didn't finish in the last few days. I didn't even finish my soup today. I didn't push it. My calories checked in at under 1200 for the day--and probably around 1000...and that will be just fine.

I can tell I'm feeling better because I was hungry at the New Years Eve party. I ate some cheese and crackers. We'll call that good for tonight. I'm off tomorrow, so I'll sleep in and hopefully wake fully rested and feeling much better.

  1. Glad you were able to do your gig. Also glad you are going to rest tomorrow! I had to look up Whinge, and found this: The Grammarphobia Blog
    On “whinge” and “whine”
    MARCH 12TH, 2007
    Q: The word “whinging” jumps off the page whenever I see it in British fiction. We don’t use it in the U.S. Why is it used in Britain?

    A: In modern English, “whinge” and “whine” generally mean the same thing, though “whinge” (it rhymes with “hinge”) isn’t often heard in the United States except in the mouths of Anglophiles.

    They come from two Old English words: “whine” from hwinan (to make a whizzing or humming sound, like an arrow in flight), and “whinge” from hwinsian (to make a sound like a dog whimpering). We probably get “whinny,” or horse talk, from the same root.

    Both words are very old; “whine” dates from 1275 and “whinge” from 1150. Originally, “whine” referred merely to the sound. But “whinge” implied a wailing or crying: the sound was one of distress. Eventually, to “whine” also came to mean complain or express discontent.

    Though Americans use only one word, “whine,” the British use both: “whining” covers a variety of meanings, including sounds made by people, animals, or inanimate objects, and “whingeing” (also spelled “whinging”) is more specifically for peevish or fretful complaining. The British sometimes use the terms together for emphasis: “Stop your whingeing and whining!”

    Buy Pat’s books at a local store or Amazon.com.

  2. In Australia, we often refer to the Britsh as 'whinging Poms' (Pommies is our nickname for them, my understanding is that they coined 'Aussies' in retaliation but we liked it. We call Americans Yanks even though that probably offends the half of the country on the other side of the war. Or Septic Tanks because that rhymes with Yanks) because they complain so much. Hmm, I spelled that with an e but spellcheck decided to remove it.

    1. I love the name "Aussies,' too! Yanks... doesn't offend me, really--might be some people in the deep South that would take exceptional offense to the term! :) Thank you for your perspective, Natalie! I find the international perspectives so incredibly fascinating!

  7. Glad you are starting to feel better! Be sure to listen to your body and not push it back to a normal diet immediately. You might need to ease back to it. :)
